Panasonic 45-150mm f/4.0-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

Covering portrait-length to telephoto perspectives, the Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic is compatible with Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 90-300mm equivalent focal length range. One UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index) element pairs with two aspherical elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions for consistent edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination. Multi-coatings have also been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity in harsh lighting conditions.

Complementing the imaging capabilities, this lens also features a stepping motor for fast and quiet autofocus performance that benefits both stills and movie shooting. Additionally, MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.

Designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this lens provides a 90-300mm equivalent focal length range to cover a variety of telephoto perspectives.
One UHR element helps to achieve even illumination and sharpness for consistent performance throughout the aperture and zoom ranges.
A pair of aspherical elements reduces spherical aberration and distortion for increased sharpness and clarity.
Multi-coated elements help to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy.
MEGA O.I.S. compensates for camera shake in order to realize sharper photos and videos when shooting handheld.
Stepping motor provides smooth, near-silent autofocus that is compatible with Lumix cameras' high-speed contrast-detection systems.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm produces a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.

    Panasonic 45-150mm f/4.0-5.6 reviews

    Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. Lens is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 85.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well Built But Slightly Soft I had high hopes for this lens. It was to be primarily used with various small Panasonic digital camera bodies for travel but sadly the image quality was not there. I had been using an Olympus 40-150 R lens for travel which produces very good image quality but lacked the Image Stabilization that would come in handy under lower lighting conditions. However, I found the Panasonic lens slightly soft which was unrecoverable in Photoshop. I will admit that the Panasonic lens appeared to have a better build quality and was slightly smaller than the Olympus but in the end it is image quality that counts. I have returned the Panasonic lens with no regrets.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not great images. Bought this over the Olympus 40-150mm f/4-5.6 because it is slightly smaller (especially when fully extended), has smaller filter thread, and has better build quality. Was hoping that the image quality would be as good as the Oly, but I am afraid it just is not quite as good. I'm not a pixel peeper, but the Olympus just looks sharper to my eye. Images are good enough, I'll keep it for the small form factor and build. I don't shoot tele-photo often enough, otherwise I would choose the Olympus, especially when you can get one on sale for $99 (which is insane considering the image quality of that lens).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck Great telephoto for travel: small, light and good range. Comparing it to the original Lumix 45-200mm, it's shorter, lighter, a little sharper and has better color rendition. The zoom ring on the 45-150 is a little stiff, but it doesn't have zoom-creep, which the 45-200 does have, and it's really annoying. I haven't done a lot of pixel peeping, but cropping a photo taken with this lens at 150mm yields the same or better results as an uncropped picture taken at 200mm. The 45-200mm II has the same optics as the original, so the comparison should be the same.� If so, choosing this lens is an easy way to save yourself $300, in exchange for some cropping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 90-300mm Performance for Micro 4:3 Bought this lens to replace my Olympus 40-150. Compared to my copy of the Olympus this lens appears to be a little sharper at the short & long end. But the difference is nothing major. Build wise this lens is better than the Olympus and feels nicer in your hand. Lens looks expensive and has a metal mount. The zoom ring & manual focusing rings turn very smoothly & it has no zoom creep. If your primary body is a 5 axis Olympus camera & you can live with the looks & built of the Olympus 40-150 buy it. I would rather paid the difference in price for the better construction alone. If this lens has some macro cabalities it would be a home run. But you can't have it all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good standard telephoto lens for a good price I received this lens for free when I purchased my GX85. I was originally looking at getting the Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 as I like that focal length for a standard telephoto. So far I have not found any reasons to upgrade to that lens yet. There have been a few times I would have preferred the extra stops of light with 35-100mm but this lens has been more than adequate so far. I would highly recommend it for any new photographers who are looking for a good telephoto. The image stabilization on this lens works well. And so far the photos have been sharp enough for me. A more experienced photographer might pick up on some of the shortcomings but for less than $200, it is a good deal for a budget telephoto.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good starting Telephoto lens Obviously, there are better options out there especially premium-grade lenses but if you consider the price you pay and the range you get. This is a very good starting Telephoto lens especially if you are new to photography. You'll get pleasing results without breaking the bank. This lens works great when used in good lighting conditions and still workable in low-light given you know your limits. The zoom ring feels good and very smooth to turn. I wish the Manual focus ring was a bit more tighter than it is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine introductory Superzoom I bought a Panasonic GX7 as a fun alternative to lugging around my Canon 7D when out and about. Because I thought the kit 14-42mm might be a bit limited I ordered the 14-150mm. Some people have said that it's too soft at the long end. I'm am enthusiast, so it'll do for until I can afford something faster like the 35-100mm f2.8. The attached photos give some idea of what you might expect hand-held at maximum zoom. I only had my first play real today, so it's possible that the photos might get sharper with more experience with the camera

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect micro four thirds lens This is a great lens for the micro four thirds system. It is small (almost the same size as the 14-42mm kit lens), lightweight and balances perfectly on my G3. The lens is so light that it can also be used on the smaller GF3 body with ease.I haven't tested the lens in daylight yet but have taken a few pics indoors. The focusing is silent but the lens can have slight trouble focusing in low light...but then this is a lens built for the great outdoors. Images produced by this lens are sharp and the bokeh is pleasing. The image stabilization is very effective as well. All in all, a perfect telephoto lens for the micro-four thirds system. And at this price, excellent value for money.
